This is the ruins of a major historical Georgian castle. I enjoyed exploring it and if you like ruined fortifications and Georgian history it is worth a stop. It is easy to visit on your way to Kakheti to drink some wine. If you don't care for ruined fortifications, you can safely skip it.

Apparently Ujar is in the list of 9 oldest castles in the world. That alone, for me, is reason enough to stop and climb the goat-track up. The view from the top, overlooking River Lori and Gombori Pass, is grand and explains why the strategic fort was built here. Most of the fortress is in ruins, except for a small church. The most picturesque structure is a massive tower, which makes a splendid backdrop for the Georgian Flag.

It used to be the second largest city in Eastern Georgian after Mtskheta well before Tbilisi was found. Seemingly not much is known about the castle apart from the facts that in early VI century king Gorgasali died of wounds sustained in battle with Persians here and the Arab invaders destroyed it four centuries later.

Yet, one can get an impression about a size of the castle once proudly overlooking the Iori gorge. A lower part, which consists of stone-made high walls is inaccessible from the main castle. To see the latter you'd need to go up on the hill, and a trail goes down towards the former.

Those fond of the nature will find this place really impressive, although the huge Bochorma castle situated deep inside this region in about 25 km from Ujarma en route to Sioni left me simply speechless. But it's not for everyone: wearing proper shoes is strongly advised, besides, it takes about an hour to walk up there.

Very beautiful forest and the river, and the ruins of the living palace of Erekle the second. The last king of Georgia. You look at the palace and understand how modest were Georgian kings. The place is very near to Tbilisi. easy to visit

If you are passing by don't miss it. Nothing much to see. Beauriful views. Don't go to the toilets.
Worth visiting

This is a very small fort on top of hill. As going to this place is worth driving but the fort is not worth going. The drive to this place is beautiful as it is a hilly drive. This place is deserted as you see no one and not even any piece of information

No proper information is provided about the fortress. For barbecue,picnic in a small group is good place to visit. Nowhere water, bring your water also)
The view from the top is attractive.
The church is on top, not maintained, seems nobody is taking care.
Some place is very dangerous, no sign boards about. Children must be under observation, better no to take children to the top.
There is entrance fee , 3 gel.

Note there are two paths to the top, one is like a goat track straight up, and the other is a wider road/path (to the right from the parking area). Fortress is interesting. Caretaker lives up there. Some small but overgrown gardens. Good view. Like a lot of Georgia, there are little safety precautions so don't get too adventurous.
